    $11,600 for Top Alcohol Qualifiers at Cavalcade of Stars in Norwalk
    Provided by Summit Motorsports Park as added incentive

    NORWALK, Ohio - Summit Motorsports Park is putting up a total of $11,600 for drivers qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car and Top Alcohol Dragster at the 12th Annual Cavalcade of Stars presented by Budweiser, May 18-20, 2018 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.

    In Top Alcohol Funny Car, which features 270-plus mph vehicles, and Top Alcohol Dragster, which features 285-plus mph vehicles, the payout for qualifying includes $1,000 for first, $900 for second, $800 for third, $700 for fourth, $600 for fifth, $500 for sixth, $400 for seventh, $300 for eighth and $150 for ninth through twelfth place qualifiers.

    That’s in addition to an already plentiful payout in those categories — the quickest and fastest of the event which traditionally welcomes the largest audience on the annual NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series North Central Division tour — as winners will receive $2,500, while runners-up will receive $1,5000, semifinalists will receive $1,000 and quarterfinalists will receive $750. All of that pushes the total purse to close to $30,000.

    “The last time I checked, a 260-plus mph dragster or Funny Car is damn exciting to watch,” said Bill Bader Jr., president of Summit Motorsports Park. “Our Top Alcohol classes are critical to our long-term sustainability, and the additional $11,600 is money well-invested.”

    Additional details about the event will be released soon. Summit Motorsports Park, which is currently undergoing a $1.6 million track reconstruction project, is at 1300 State Route 18, Norwalk, Ohio. For information, call 419-668-5555 or visit www.summitmotorsportspark.com.
